What is the best portable air compressor to get?

I know you absolutely need one, but what should I get?

Personal preference really, a lot of folks swear by the sears brand, I have the Husky from Menards 150psi and works fine for me. Here is a thread on this subject. Portable Air Compressor Recommendations
You need to determine where you will store it in your rig and then go from there.

I carry a CO2 cylinder, it will fill alot of tires and for the price its well worth it, we got a cylinder gauge, hose and air chuck for about the same price as a good compressor, and we can fill a tire in about 1/4 of the time. its portable as well so when its not in the TH we have it on the truck or quad, I really like this set up

HERE ya go. This is what I replace our heavy 3 gallon pancake compressor with. The weight thing got tiresome and the Sear's model cut the weight in half and I now carry an oil change container and my portable drill and battery case in the same space. I did however, get rid of the whimpy hose that came with the compressor. I can now air all tires from the same outlet(outside radio compartment). Tops off the 22.5s nicely. Bob

12volt a Viair constant duty----for 110 volts there are a million that will work---the term "best" is subjective, How much room, is weight a factor, noise etc; You should get a lot of suggestions here so just read and think it over.

I installed a 12v Viair system with a tank (pricey, very handy)----for reasons other than airing tires----and I threw in a nasty air horn on a gas rig for the heck of it----sweet.

I can't really reccomend it because of the price---but you could look at their website and decide for yourself. It suits me fine and it is a quality set up.
